first time we've heard it in the south loop that i can recall
Not an engineer, so someone correct me if wrong....Believe that instead of drilled/poured concrete caissons they are using driven H-piles for the foundation work due to certain soil conditions. The repetitive banging is the pile driver, though I am unsure of a completion eta. Once the building starts going vertical it should stop.
